Tuesday, January 3, 2017
Columbia, SC - Treasurer Curtis Loftis signed 4 letters returning $103,393.20 in unclaimed property.
"Returning money to the rightful owners is a big goal of the unclaimed property program," said Treasurer Loftis. "It's great when people who don't know they have money waiting for them find it. Everyone should check their name because there could be hundreds of dollars waiting for them."
Examples of the type of property covered by the Unclaimed Property Program include bank accounts, stock certificates, checks, insurance policies and utility deposits. The Unclaimed Property Program does not include tangible property like land or vehicles.
